    Fantastic idea! I’ve been looking for something my kids can make during one of our weekend ‘Sewing Circles’. Thankyou.

    What a great idea! I love it completely and I know what I’m going to do with my husband’s old tees

    Very cool! Eco and stylish. Might I add, you can line them with old denim for an extra strong hold.

    Yeah, I had some “sentimental” t’s that I didn’t want to get rid of, but at the same time I never wear them anymore. This project was perfect for them! I get to keep them around without taking up space in my closet. :)

    great idea!!! so simple yet clever—and i have so many race tees that i don’t ever wear—I could make some bags to keep in the car!! :)
